Don’t wait until you hire job applicants before finding out how well they’ll hold up to grueling work. Stretch out the interview process to test candidates’ mettle. Here’s how:
- Run top candidates through a full day of interviews and testing.
- Look for sustained energy levels in candidates. Do they show the same enthusiasm as earlier in the day? Or are they drained from all the activity and interaction?
- Determine how much information the candidates retained. Ask each applicant for the names of the last three people he or she met and the topics they discussed.
